I have been writing a new novel, this one takes place in modern day New York and is in no way semi-autobiographical (just like Ethan Hawke's new movie). However, I created such a charming character yesterday, he came out of no where, he is in training for the New York marathon, and I admit, I have a bit of a crush. In fact, most of my life's crushes have been from fictional characters rather than real men....I think it began with Atticus Finch, continued on with Mr. Darcy, and just got worse with Mike Flannigan.
Silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way.
